Tron 3 (Jared Leto Circling)

Post by WyldeMan on 3/10/2015, 5:35 pm


Disney raised eyebrows earlier today when we learned the head-scratching news that Tim Burton is directing a live-action remake of Dumbo, and now they’re going with the one-two punch in surprising announcements. The local news source VanCity Buzz (via Badass Digest) reports that Tron 3 will be shooting in Vancouver this fall, giving us our first update on the project in years. Tron Legacy opened in 2010 to so-so reviews and so-so box office, leading Disney to drag its feet on continuing the franchise in a timely fashion. Most assumed that a third Tron movie was dead for now, but if VanCity Buzz’s report is indeed true, then Disney is taking some of that Marvel money (and upcoming Star Wars money) and investing in this franchise once again.

It’s important to note that VanCity Buzz isn’t some rumor site—it’s a legitimate news source. And beyond that, Badass Digest cites its own sources saying Tron 3 is definitely shooting this fall in Vancouver, with Legacy director Joseph Kosinski returning to direct. The VanCity report also notes that Garrett Hedlund is attached to come back and star (he’s no doubt contractually obligated), so it really looks like this is it folks: Tron 3 is happening.

Our last solid update on the project came in 2013, when Kosinski told us he was confident Tron 3 would see the light of day, adding that the current script had “a much broader appeal.” Whether this iteration of the sequel is still using that script is unknown at this time, but Tron fans are no doubt happy to hear the franchise may still have some life in it.

I'm probably the only one here happy by this but as a Tron franchise fan and a bigger Hedlund fan, this is bad ass news. I'd love for Olivia to return too.

I had no idea they were interested in making another one. I liked Tron 2 so I think this is great. I do hope Olivia returns too. She's so hot in this.

I liked Tron 2, saw it in IMAX 3D...twice. That pic of Olivia has been my background on a few occasions.

Bring on T3

Been waiting for a 3rd Tron movie. Didn't think we'd actually see it anytime soon.

While the FX leap between the first and second is a bit hard to digest at first because of the quantum leap in effects over that 30 year period, I still feel like Tron holds up well and that Legacy was a fitting sequel. I actually watched them both again just a few weeks back and found myself thinking the third film would take another 30 years.

We've got a title and it's kind of awesome. Also confirmation on filming, hopefully Hedlund and Wilde's return announcements aren't far off.

I like it! Hedlund and Wilde have to return. After Quorra made it through the real world, the virtual world will probably start to ascend into ours. Is Hedlund confirmed to return?

I believe he's still under obligation from his original contract.

Olivia Wilde Reteams With Garrett Hedlund for 'Ascension'
Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund are set to return for Disney’s Tron 3.

The pair will reprise their characters from 2010’s Tron: Legacy in the sequel, which is being directed by Joseph Kosinski.


Legacy was the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi film that took place inside a computer world known as the Grid and starred Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner. While not a hit at the time, it later drew a big cult following and became an influence on filmmakers and pop culture.

Decades later, Disney revisited the world with Legacy. The story revealed that the computer-programmer character played by Bridges had a son (Hedlund) who jumped into the Grid to find his father. Wilde was Quorra, an algorithm-made-flesh who also happened to kick butt.

Disney has been developing a sequel to Legacy since the movie grossed $400 million worldwide. Hedlund in 2012 said he would return to the visual-effects-heavy franchise, but that was when the project was circling a 2014 start.

The project is now looking to shoot this fall, likely in Vancouver, British Columbia. Plot details are being kept offline.

Olivia Wilde Says Story Follows Quorra in the Real World; Confirms Filming Plans
While talking to Wilde for the world premiere of Meadowland at the Tribeca Film Festival, she confirmed that she’s also heard that the movie will begin shooting in Vancouver in October:


“You know, I’ve heard the same. I think there’s a lot of people really excited to make it happen within Disney and in the world, and we’ve been dreaming of making it since we finished Legacy so I would be thrilled.”
Even though it’s taken the Tron team nearly five years to get another movie going, Wilde stressed that they’ve been interested in making another film ever since finishing up Legacy. The only problem has been finding the right story:
“The delay has only ever been story, finding the right story. It hasn’t been anything else. There’s never been a time where we wanted to go and then schedules got in the way. It’s only been like, ‘That’s not the right story.’ So, in the past year, the right story kind of came together and we felt, ‘Oh, this actually – this might be the right one to tell.’ And, you know, there’s still a lot to be done before it could actually happen, but the fact that there’s a goal of this year to start is really exciting.”
So clearly they’ve got a promising story idea, but does that mean they’ve got a script, too? Here’s what Wilde said when asked if she’s read one:
“I have, I have.”
At the end of Legacy, Sam and Quorra leave the grid and wind up in the real world, so when asked what she’s looking forward to most in the film to come, it’s no surprise that Wilde noted that she’s especially thrilled to bring her character into new territory:
“I love this character of Quorra so much and I’ve built her with Joe Kosinski and we took her such a long way from what was written to what we made. I mean, I fought for her to be this kind of androgynous child and that’s so not what you typically see in these movies, so I’m so grateful that the producers let me play with her and make her this strange little being. And I’m really excited to see what happens to that character when put into the real world. I think it’s an interesting concept. I’m fascinated by all discussions of AI, and especially now today and now with virtual reality becoming something that’s like a personal device, I think it’s the time to tell this story.”
Again, Disney has yet to confirm that the film is actually happening, but Wilde certainly makes it seem like the studio and everyone involved is eager to get going. Hopefully we’ll get an official announcement and perhaps a release date in the near future.

Cool! Quorra will probably be awkward in the real world.

Game Over For ‘Tron 3′
The digital gladiatorial games will no longer take up space on anyone’s hard drive, as sources have confirmed that Disney has cancelled Tron 3. Though the film had apparently never been officially greenlit, we’ve heard that it has been in development for several months. In fact, as recently as early April, reports had it that stars Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund were set to reprise their Tron: Legacy roles, with director Joseph Kosinski on board to direct.

While the reasons for the project’s cancellation haven’t been disclosed, the relatively soft landing Tron: Legacy enjoyed in 2010, and the tepid enthusiasm for the Tron series since then, likely contributed. Tron: Legacy brought in somewhat healthy revenues, making Kosinski among the highest-grossing first time directors ever, but the film just wasn’t that profitable for Disney. Global earnings were just shy of $400 million, but Tron:Legacy had a roughly $180 million budget, (and likely a similar amount was spent on marketing). Not the return Disney had hoped for on its attempt to relaunch the franchise after 28 years.

Further, in the years since Tron: Legacy hit theaters, Disney added Lucasfilm and the guaranteed cash cow of future Star Wars films to its empire, lessening the appeal of funding more Tron.

Jared Leto Circling 'Tron' Reboot at Disney

After cancelling a third installment in the sci-fi franchise in 2015, Disney is exploring the idea of a movie that would act as a Leto vehicle.

Disney is planning to get back on the grid.

The studio is in the very early stages of development for a new Tron movie, with Oscar-winning actor Jared Leto circling to star, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

No writer has been hired at this exploratory stage, and no filmmaker is involved. Justin Springer, who co-produced Tron: Legacy and exec produced the Tom Cruise sci-fi movie Oblivion, will produce. Leto and and his producing partner Emma Ludbrook would also be involved in some producing capacity if the project moves forward.

Tron was the 1982 Disney movie set in the fantastic world inside a computer program, a cyberspace called the Grid. Starring Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner, the film wasn’t a hit at the time but was influential with its envelope-pushing special effects and drew a cult following in the years after due to its imaginative story.

In 2010, Disney revisited the world with Tron: Legacy, which starred Garrett Hedlund and Olivia Wilde and brought back Bridges. Joseph Kosinski directed. The expensive movie made $400 million worldwide, good enough to warrant interesting in a sequel.

But it’s been a series of shutdowns and restarts for a sequel and just as it seemed it was heading towards pre-production, the studio pulled the plug for good in 2015.

But computer programs never die, it seems, they just get upgrades.

Sources say this new project is not a direct sequel and is being built out of the source code of the deleted Tron 3 script. Leto would play a character named Ares, who has not appeared on screen before but was a key player in that script.

At this stage it's too early to tell if Kosinski or actors from Tron: Legacy will return.

Leto last portrayed the DC Comics villain The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad. He will next appear with Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford in Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049, and is attached to direct Paramount's crime thriller 77.

They have to bring the actors from Tron Legacy. I liked Olivia as Quorra.
